b2evolution version 3.3.3-stable has been released. Just in time so you can upgrade before the hollidays ;)
Version 3.3.3 is a maintenance release containing a few bug fixes and most importantly: it gives you back the option to insert pictures into a post right after upload. (Thanks to Tilman for backporting this from the development branch into the 3.3-stable branch).
Upgrading from version 3.3.1 or 3.3.2 is only a matter of replacing a few files.
Upgrades from previous versions will require to follow the standard upgrade procedure (takes about 5 minutes if you have no hacks). Skins are compatible since b2evolution 2.x.
Major changes in 3.3.3
- Allow users to act on uploaded files (@francoisplanque/@tblue)
- Made avatars optional.
- Integrated 2 new skins.
- Updated SEO presets from Rand Fishkin.

the quick update files are coming up as a bad download link. sourceforge says the files don’t exist.
I think sourceforge downloads are working now :)
thanks for your CMS, it is remarkable and powerful…
but it is sorry that it has small quantity of plugins (for example by comparison to wordpress)..
Rather than focusing on the raw number of plugins, I recommend you focus more on features of the CMS and its plugins. If you say you want more plugins, nobody really gets inspired. If you suggest specific plugins that you think are missing, somebody might actually get interested in porting or creating these for b2evolution ;)
You do a great job, fox! I really like b2evolution and I appreciate your efforts to keep it’s high standards.
the number of plugins indicates that this software does not need them. i could not think of a better system. it has all you’ll ever need. i updated today. great job!

Can I upgrade directly from version 1.9.3 to 3.3.3?
Yes, you can upgrade from *any* older version, as old as 0.7!
does it support php 5.3? very important for me to know
by the way, i got two ideas for plugins, one of them is a plugin for IP blocking rather than banning keywords, it would be very very useful, and second a plugin or something to adjust wordpress skins to work on b2evo because there are not so many b2evo skins and many people have no idea about css. Thanks.
Yes b2evo does support PHP 5.3.
Smooth upgrade as always!
